"In order to be successful, you have to trust your judgment, learn from past experiences and understand process integrity."

Founder and Chairman of Penki Kontinentai Group

When asked about the creation of the company, Idrakas explains that the main idea behind it was to introduce innovative technology into the daily lives of people. Being unique and constantly seeking discovery are core values for the Chairman, which have translated into his business that has grown to be an international high-technology corporation providing services for over 30 years.

As the Chairman of Penki Kontinentai Group, Idrakas Dadašovas is responsible for defining the strategic direction of the company group. The decisions he makes affect the workflow of the entire group of companies, while his supervision and guidance ensure that the corporate goals are being achieved. His approach to management is based on the idea of integrity, in a sense that minor issues tend to all refer to a single system.

Idrakas claims that his pensive nature was determined by his upbringing. He came from a reading household and was taught traditional family values. Having 5 older siblings taught him humility and respect. From early childhood, he had a deep interest in exact sciences. Later in life, he got involved in computing, which became his greatest passion. Idrakas started his career at a time when professional books and other resources were lacking. Information had to be obtained in practice by deconstructing machinery and understanding operational processes at the lowest levels.

The main driving force for Idrakas Dadašovas is his opposition to a dull and uncreative environment. When put in a passive atmosphere, he explains, you simply have to stand out and create. Finding oneself in a comfort zone leads to stagnation and lack of initiative.

Approach to leadership

According to Idrakas Dadašovas, running a company is very intuitive. One needs to be flexible, evaluate the situation and prioritize. For a technology company, being creative is also key in remaining relevant. In a world that is changing faster than ever, you have to be the part of the change and always create something new, and to see people adopt the technology that is available thanks to your input is the biggest possible reward.

Excited for what the future holds, Idrakas Dadashovas remains confident about the success of Penki Kontinentai Group, as the Chairman believes that there is always place for growth.
